From the Author
Wayne Embry doesn't just take you to the backboards of basketball, the former center takes you into the backrooms where the real deals are cut. His discussion of the Shawn Kemp deal and the inner workings of the Cleveland Cavaliers front office are eye-opening, a must for any Cavs fan. Embry is a Hall of Famer, and this book is at that high level.
---Terry Pluto, Akron Beacon Journal
I have never known a more fair-minded man than Wayne Embry. He unselfishly shared his knowledge of the game with other general managers and coaches for many years. The NBA has lost his knowledge and background as a five-time NBA All-Star, as well as successful general manager in Milwaukee and Cleveland, and sorely misses his presence. This book blends basketball and inspiration into a must read for all ages.
---Pete Newell, Hall of Famer and Legendary Coach
